What got you into cosplay?
At first it was a couple of very forceful friends manipulating my love for sewing because they wanted to win a contest at our local library anime/manga club's cosplay gathering with a Death Note cosplay group. My costume was pretty horrible, but I fell in love with the experience after that.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Alois Trancy. I love the Black Butler fandom - everyone I've met in it is so nice and welcoming, and they're fun to play along with.
Do you participate in masquerades?
Not yet, but I hope to do so soon!
Have you won any awards for your costumes?
Well, I haven't entered any contests, so winning awards is a bit difficult...
